August through November 2011 AV-comparatives.org Whole Product Dynamic Test

AV-Comparatives has released the Whole Product Dynamic Test for the August through November timeframe. The top five products are listed below. The top five products in the March through June timeframe – Symantec, F-Secure, BitDefender, G Data, and Trend Micro. All of these were in the top 10 in the latter half of the year.

August through November Results AV–comparatives.org Whole Product Dynamic Test

1. 99.5 – Symantec
2. 99.4 – BitDefender
3. 99.1 - Kaspersky
4. 98.9 – Qihoo
5. 98.8 – Trend Micro

Of the above, only Trend Micro did not receive the Three Star Advanced Rating. F-Secure and G Data did, however. PC Tools and Webroot were at the bottom for the latter half of the year. They received the not so coveted “Tested” designation.

To see complete results for the latter half of the year (17 vendors), go to http://www.av-comparatives.org/en/comparativesreviews/dynamic-tests

The burning question for 2011 – How many toothpicks does it take to safely surf Facebook?
